3rd post op day bunionectomy...

I am a little worried, it is my 3rd post op day. I had a bunionectomy with Akin osteotomy with a fixation screw and a k-wire. My big toe is still numb, not completely, but like pins and needles when I touch it. Is this normal? I am in a fair amount of pain that is getting better each day, but I am taking the percocet around the clock. Are these signs of complications? I see my doctor tomorrow for a dsg change. Thanks!

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
